What works for boosting immune system for cancer?
Can counseling help with a high immune system? Here is great news for women being treated for cancer:
At the University of California, Irvine, researchers discovered that as few as 6 telephone counseling sessions, after their cancer treatment, helped to improve the immune system as well as quality of life of women who had been treated for cervical cancer. (Journal, Clinical Cancer Research)
Research has already shown that both stress and negative emotions can weaken the immune system.

Dr Nelson and Dr Wenzel found that the women also reported improvements in quality of life after the 6 telephone counseling sessions, which helped in dealing with issues, and decrease stress. Dr. Nelson reported that:
